How to bot safe on privet servers

Guide by Conne2

 

? So to start things of with, botting is always a risk, and this guide will definitely not keep you from getting banned for 100%..  but it will for sure increase your already existing chanses by 40-70% depending on how much of the advice you are taking.?

? So i've have been using Different bots on World of warcraft for over past 5 years starting with HB and now Wrobot. I've made a lot of profiles on HB and some here on Wrobot. and i've been banned atleast 5-7 times on Retail WOW 
And i've been learning from every time i got banned what i did wrong and i've been improving a lot. I would not consider myself as a "Proffesional botter" but i know my ways around stuffs... And im only doing this guide to
help ppl using Wrobot.

ϟ So Here is some quick advice that almost 90% of all bot users know. but im putting it out here just in case. ϟ


①  Never ever run the bot 24/7  keep it running for max 7-8h a day.
 
 Look over your bot as much as you can, there is always things that can go wrong. 
"You dont want attention from nobody"  meaning don't bot on for exampel friday evening when there is a lot of players online, don't keep botting if you see a lot of players in the area, don't report players and making GM's know you even exist. 

If you get a warning or if ppl have been /W you saying that they have been reporting you, do not keep botting, take a break for atleast a week, all reports will always be looked in to, and the chanses of getting banned are almost surtent if you ignore reports. 
And the Golden rule is to be patient, you dont have to ruch all they way to 60 (if you are playing Vanilla) in just 1 week of botting, take time, take breaks from botting don't take the rist of botting on a saturday evening when a lot of players is online. and keep calm. mistakes will be made all the time in life. and if you ever get banned, learn from it. And make it right the next time (Tho im making this toturial to make sure you wont get banned :D)

▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
 And now to some better tips that all ppl may not know.  ?

* Try to use known and tested profiles proven to be working and good. 

* Never keep to much gold on the account you are botting on, try to mail it over to a different account. 

* Use a good fighting class and make sure to go throug all the setting on the Wrobot client before starting the bot (for the first time) make sure you know whats up.

*Use the the Wrobot forum, there is a lot of good content if you are looking for advice in the botting experience. 

* If you see that some one is following you and you are beeing watched. stop the bot and move around like a normal player, mby even type in the chat " Waddup something you want, i've seen that you have been following me for a while" or something like that, if the GM is taking a look in to the report and see that you have been active in that chat, they may just close the report and you are good to go.

*Don't make your own profile, only do it if you rly know what you are doing, and if so dont use it on your Main account, or not even your "main bot account"
better to be safe then banned  if your profile is bugged in some way. 

* Never leave the bot running for itself more then 2 hours without watching it, and make sure to have the settings if some one do /W you more then 10 times the bot will close .

The last golden tips i have for you botters who wanna bot on your main account if you are over lvl 40-50 is to use this addon   --> 
https://wrobot.eu/files/file/1045-stop-bot-private-servers/
That addon will make you stand still if a player is rly near you, and that way he will not suspect you for botting, he will just think that you are afk. (i only recomend using this if you wanna be rly rly safe)

 And this is some advice from FNV316 

-You can start Tracker before any other modul and select humanoids, so it's much easier to keep track of nearby players on the mini map, even if they are out of sight ( humanoid NPCs will be displayed as well tho). Tracker should stay active until WoW has to reload.

-Especially for grinding, going back to town on a regular base can help to reduce the risk of other players monitoring you for a longer time or running into the bot over and over again. The chance getting caught while doing non bot related stuff is pretty low in my experience.

-Don't bot seven days a week, let it sleep a couple of days every other day.

-If someone invites you into a group to do a quest with them, don't just log out (-> bottish behavior). Move to a safe spot and let the bot paused (-> /AFK) for long enough to be sure the player has moved on.

-Addons like TinyTip allow you to see other players target by just hovering over them. If you see someone targeting you, target them back.

-Wrobots remote function allows you to monitor your bots without staying at your computer all the time (f.e. via smartphone).

-Avoid areas with a high density of quests if possible. Don't grind on mobs related to quests.

-Use tools to increase your latency to ~300-500 ms (personal preference). This helps to hide bottish movement / behavior.

-Never use more than one IP for each bot instance or even your main account. Set up a proxy or get yourself a fresh IP.

Thats all from me, There might be some more good advice that could be implemented in this toturial. but thats all from me.. 
<Ther might be some wrong spelling tho i am from Sweden>



I wish you all a safe botting experience on World of Warcraft!

Nice list you created there, especially for users new to botting. Let me add some additional points:

I'm going to self promote my plugin, because I feel that it is what gives me the confidence to bot safely on my accounts.  I'm rather self-conscious regarding getting banned / looking too botty, so I created a plugin that can send phone notifications, send emails, and play sound files, pause bot when an event occurs.

The plugin can watch for:

  • Whisper Received
  • Say message Received
  • Character Died
  • Character Logged Out
  • Players nearby
  • Enemy Nearby
  • Character Teleported
    • Continent Changed (or)
    • Character moved very big distance


This plugin works on all versions of WoW. Including Vanilla :D 

 

 

 

Great post, and good points @conne2 . Thanks for sharing!
